Why Bamboo – Free Fly Apparel

The Bamboo Difference

What sets bamboo apart from other fabrics

  • Bamboo

    Bamboo stands out with its buttery soft feel, moisture wicking, and odor resistant benefits, just to name a few. In the search for the perfect performance fabric, it was the ultimate natural fiber for us.

  • Synthetic

    Although synthetic materials have many great performance properties, we were tired of the clothing feeling like plastic and holding smell.

  • Cotton

    Cotton is a hugely popular fabric, but when used in performance clothing it sticks to your skin and holds moisture.

Our Process

From plant to product

  • Step 1:
    sourcing and extracting

    Our bamboo is grown in sustainable forests in the central region of China. Bamboo is renewable, grows rapidly with minimal water and requires no pesticides or fertilizers. The soft inner layer (pith) is mixed with a natural solvent, breaking it down and turning into bamboo viscose.

  • Step 2:
    viscose to fabric

    The viscose is then spun into a fine yarn — the key to creating the softest fiber imaginable. It is then combined with a touch of quick dry material to be knit, dyed and sewn into our apparel. 

  • Step 3:
    responsible product

    Our products are cut and sewn in Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certified facilities. We ensure that our products are created ethically and with care — with people and the environment at the forefront.
